The Lake George Land Conservancy is an accredited, not-for-profit land trust dedicated to working with willing landowners and other partners to protect the world-renowned water quality of Lake George and to permanently preserve the natural, scenic, historical and recreational resources of the Lake George region.

Founded in 1988, the LGLC uses progressive conservation strategies to work with landowners, government officials, conservation partners, volunteers, and supporters aimed at securing the protection of special natural places for future generations to enjoy. Our nature preserves are open to the public for educational, scientific or passive recreational pursuits, such as hiking, bird watching and photography.
